Manchester United 'to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during worldwide break'

Arsenal move above Man Utd as Solskjaer suffers first league defeat EPL 4th spot race: More than just cash at stake

Former United defender Gary Neville hinted last week, after the club's astonishing Champions League win at Paris Saint-Germain to go through from 2-0 down after the first leg, that he would "be surprised" if they do not confirm Solskjaer during that spell and the club are indeed moving in that direction.

Meanwhile the United manager said: " You have to be disappointed with the result but the performance was good.

The defence again looked like a cohesive unit and they looked like they were playing with a little bit of confidence knowing that they have Bernd Leno in excellent form behind them, Ainsley Maitland-Niles particularly impressed at right-wing back considering he was out of position and he was my man of the match.

"In the first half we played like the quarter-finals, or the best eight teams in Europe, but in the second half we need to watch the game, analyse, and be critical of ourselves", said the Argentine, hinting he needs to be backed with funds to improve his squad in the summer, should he remain in charge. "We are going to play some hard games but it is important we are consistent".

"We can feel very proud of the players".

"We are going to play Newcastle here after three weeks and our focus now is on Thursday". Although we are in the top 4, winning the competition would certainly prove a bonus.

"It has been fantastic so far but today is the lowest..."

After United's FA Cup tie with Wolves at the weekend, their next domestic match takes place on 30 March, by which time the club hope to have Solskjaer installed as permanent boss.

The Manchester United number one seemed to be completely bamboozled by a speculative looking effort from Granit Xhaka, moving to the left before helplessly watching the ball sail into the right side of his goal. I know more than anyone sometimes those chances don't go in.

We are, however, unbeaten in five in the league with only Tottenham taking points off us in the current run. We didn't put enough pressure on (him), it swerves and moves. "That's just one of those things".
